The first group to "Occupy" was the Wall Street crowd - and now we have a list of their demands. Oh boy, is this a list!
Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This one is cryptic, the code-phrase "living wage" is from unions, it is a euphemism for the exorbitant wages and benefits they enjoy. Included in this demand is some strange notion that levying trade tariffs on all imports will happily level the playing field for overly-expensive American goods. This will start a massive trade-war of course, but gosh we are on a roll right?
Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. Surprise! Socialized, unaffordable, magical free healthcare for the masses - heaven is just this easy!
Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment. Again, cryptic, do they intend a flat wage for all? Ala communism? That has been tried how many times? And how many have succeeded? When you suck the incentive to differentiate thru talent or hard work, what do you get? Oh yea, mediocritity, you know, government union workers.
Demand four: Free college education. Aha! Now we get down to it - the not so hidden, not so hidden, hidden agenda. Forgive student loans, and for the rest - well, Harvard open your ivy gates.
Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand. Oh yea, fast track this one - crash the worlds economies, and sit next to your windmill for the one year till it quits working.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now. Return of the Obama stimulus - are these guys listen at all?
Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, Cool. A trillion here a trillion there, before you know it, you are talking real bucks... The driven ignorance of how the economy works is well embedded in these pea-brained malcontents.
Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment. Huh? Didn't we already pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 back in 1964? And, oh yea, didn't we also reject a whole amendment to the constitution stating that woman have equal rights - even voting rights?
Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live. Lets see any of these idiots try to travel and/or try to work in Mexico whenever, and wherever they want, c'mon, lets see ya try.
Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system. Yea, though the Democrats/Acorn are the party of voter fraud, and illegals voting, we need to treat our election system like a third world country - purple thumbs anyone?
Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. You read right, they want all debt, mortgages, credit cards to just vaporize, like when the bank takes your house, and your credit cards for non payment - this one will work - just ask the banks...
Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies. Covering the back-end too, in other words, you get free money, all debt forgiven, and just in case you forgot to tell the bank, they can't zap your credit either, nice catch...
Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign. Can you smell the unions behind much of this? The stench is pretty strong...
Well, we suspected it, now we know it - they are insane. And they are greedy... wait, greedy? Isn't that what they are supposed to be railing against? Greed? Ironic huh?
